Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Oct.-Dec 69'

I'm generally not a fan of this era of the band minus a few exceptions, believe it or not... to me it is just too loose and laid back compared to the bone-crushing intensity of the Jan-Feb. shows or the psychedelic power of Apr-June.

That said I really like your analysis for the most part, as there are a handful shows from Fall '69 that I have yet to explore.

One thing that surprised me was that you found the 10/25 Dark Star to be just "regular" as this to me is one of the most outstanding moments of these shows...the rest of the 10/25 show, on the other hand, does absolutely nothing for me. The subjectivity of it all is fascinating, isn't it?

Yeah CC,I couldn't agree more about the subjectivity,oft times I find myself in agreement with your opinion so I was surprised when in your review of 10/25 you didn't care for the 11, which I think is just a killer.I'm not real big on a lot of the 69'-Oct 71' material, but that being said I really like what I find good.
